Happy Friday, Wildcats! The Falvey Memorial Library is happy to announce the start of a new weekly blog series: Weekend Recs, a blog dedicated to filling you in on what to read, listen to, and watch over the weekend. Daniella, one of our graduate assistants from the English department, will scour the internet each week to find new, relevant, and thought-provoking content that will challenge you and prepare you for the upcoming week. 

Did you know that VU Pride Week is next week? Be sure to check out the list of events (below) and take a look at this weekend’s recommendations. I decided to highlight queer narratives and LGBTQA-centered media. Enjoy, and Happy Pride!

 

If you have six minutes:

Listen to this fairly recent TED Talk about the centuries-old history of the trans community.

If you have two hours:
Check out Falvey’s copy of Basically Queer, an introductory book to the LGBTQA community. It offers explanations, definitions, and information regarding sexuality and gender identity, as well as a succinct account of queer history.
If you have an afternoon:
Peruse LGBTQA-centered media platforms, such as GLAAD, them, and ADVOCATE, to read news and articles not featured on mainstream media outlets.
If you have more than a day:
Listen to Janet Mock’s podcast, Never Before. In it, Mock, a transgender woman and well-known advocate for the queer community, interviews well-known celebrities, writers, fashion designers, and more.
